How to Remove Makeup from Face | Before and After Makeup of a Nigerian Beauty Blogger

Quote of the day: “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”-Nehemiah 8:10.


Hi guys! If you're checking this post out from my home page click on it! Today, is all about how I remove my makeup. While the process of putting on makeup can sometimes be therapeutic for me, removing it can be a struggle at times.

The last thing anyone needs is to be callous with makeup bu letting it sleep on your face (or body CC Kim Kardashian's body makeup). Previously, I swore by Neutrogena wipes but with the amount of fake in the market, and taking into consideration how my skin is I resolved to using plain hypoallergenic baby wipes.

Recently, while shopping for skincare products I discovered the Rosewater and glycerin I used in this video. I bought it for N500 (I know it's a good bargain for how great it is on my face).

The cotton wool balls I used were also purchased for N300.

Here are close shots of the rosewater and glycerin I use to remove my makeup.

AN HONEST REVIEW OF ASWANI MARKET LAGOS- MY EXPERIENCE

Quote of the Day : S eek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things shall be added unto you. Hi, dolls! Welcome to today's post. How are you doing? Forgive me for the long time no post here on the blog I've been very busy in the non-virtual world. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed the hiatus there as well. It's been one thing or the other for your girl Lily of Nigeria , but our God is faithful to the pulling down of strongholds. Aswani is one of the most popular second-hand market (aka bend down select ) in Lagos. My curiosity about Aswani market began last year when someone talked about it in a passing small talk. It wasn’t the first time I had heard of the market. I grew up(for a while in FESTAC town) so I knew the market existed, but I had never been there. I made up my mind to go and see for myself. You know your girl is a curious-kitty with a heart that constantly longs for adventures. So, I discuss

SAVIOURS AGAINST DRY SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON/COLD WEATHER | A SKINCARE POST

My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if
